Rise and Shine July 8 – Costco appetizer ideas, Macy’s FREE shipping, women’s activewear on sale, Osprey bags, Skittles, Planters, more

Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! How was your weekend? We had a fun weekend – went to a little one’s birthday party Saturday and had company over for dinner last night. We stopped into Costco yesterday and picked up some great deals.

Check out the appetizer I made from Costco ingredients for our dinner last night (picture above). I picked up a jar of pesto (on sale for $6.79), a container of marinated mozzarella (on sale for $7.99) and a container of cherry tomatoes. I took a platter and spread a thin layer of pesto out on the plate and then skewered the mozzarella, tomato and a small piece of basil. These were a huge hit – the plate was cleared by the end of the night.

I also picked up some hummus, the 2-pack of baguettes, snap peas, peppers, carrots and cherry tomatoes – makes a yummy appetizer, too! And we have lots of extras for healthy snacks at home this week. With the kids home during the summer it seems like groceries don’t last very long around here, can you relate? What are some of your favorite appetizer ideas?
